Our Signature Event – WHD STL
World Hoop Day is the hooper’s holiday. For 2013 it will be celebrated on October 5th. There is a big event, offering a variety of performance, workshops, and other activities. In St. Louis we do our part by giving 100 hand-made hoops to a selected school in the St. Louis Public Schools district as our contribution to the World Hoop Day concept. The STL hoop Club to date has donated 400 hand-made hoops to three different schools and taught over a dozen workshops in direct relation to this project. Details about this annual project will be released about 3 months prior to the event.
